Nixon Peabody

Nixon Peabody LLP is growing its California presence

Nixon Peabody continues to add top talent in Los Angeles and San Francisco to deliver on its commitment to exceptional service for clients in California and across the country. This high-impact West Coast growth strategy has powered several key additions in recent months, as successful attorneys from the public and private sectors recognize the benefits of NP’s platform.

Earlier this year, the LA office welcomed Chris Grigg, a veteran federal prosecutor and former Los Angeles County deputy district attorney. Chris joined the firm as a partner in the Government Investigations & White-Collar Defense practice. Recently, the San Francisco office welcomed a dynamic, women-led lateral group to the firm’s Real Estate Litigation practice. Partners Ashley E. Klein and A. Jeanne Grove lead a strong team that also includes partner Jaimie Bombard, counsel Morgan Cahill-Marsland, Laura Campbell, Lauren Jones, Marrianne Taleghani, and Matthew Urdan, department attorneys Stephanie Andersen, Alexandra Azad, and Lindsey Schmidt, and paralegal Caitlin Scott. NP also added experienced litigator David Kocan as counsel in the firm’s Intellectual Property practice in San Francisco.

The firm also welcomed back several NP alumni, including former associate Garth Bostic, who returned to the LA office as counsel in the Community Development Finance group.

These new arrivals join a dynamic team of 600 Nixon Peabody attorneys offering broad, deep experience across key practice areas. Together, they provide sophisticated legal solutions to clients’ most complex challenges.
